St. Pio of Pietrelcina, priest, religious, and stigmatist, is remembered on Sept. 23. He is an amazing saint and there are many great books out there about him. You can also read more about him HERE and HERE.
Because St. Pio was a priest and a stigmatist, we made an ornament that depicts his holy hands holding the Blessed Sacrament. If you want, you can make the bandage brown which is St. Pio\’s traditional bandage, but I chose off-white so you could see the blood marks… it\’s more \”real\” to the kids.
To create this ornament we used tan, white (for the host), off-white (for the bandages), and a mixed gray felt. We used red and brown permanent markers for adding detail to the host and the bandages.
St. Pio, pray for us!
May God bless you all with joy!
